65 lbs Gone & Still going

I've never posted a success story before- so bear with me. I actually began my Journey back April 2013. I began at Around roughly 250 + lbs. I honestly stopped weighing after a while. I began to sift through all my clothes and looks for ones that were too small- I even bought some new ones I knew wouldn't fit. They looked great (I can now wear most of them) and they helped Keep me motivated a bit. I have never really been one to exercise and watch my food, I've always been 'plump' and didn't expect much to change.
Within the first Few weeks I dropped lbs just by Cutting back on soda and chips and chocolate bars. I started logging all my food and felt really gross. I couldn't believe what I was eating. I still dabble in 'junk food' here and there, but fit it into my Calories for the day and ensure it's only a treat for the week :)
Since I was younger I had Taken Multiple Medications including Basic Birth control, Sleeping Pills and Inhalers. After I spent a month or so cleaning u my Dietary act, I visited my doters and got a check up. I switched my BC to a brand that had lower risks and Less chance of Weight Gain, Along with Weaning myself Off of my Sleeping pills (Still necessary sometimes). My inhalers I am proud to say has become pretty useless. I don't seem to nee them since I've lost a lot of weight. Of course I keep them around in case, but Exercise and Walking are much easier on my body now.

I began to Swim a lot, taking advantage of the free swims in my Area and when summer ended- I took up a Gym pass so I could continue swimming there! I love swimming as an exercise, I would take all sorts of Water Aerobics classes! I Kept it up until it became a financial issue, and from there I took it to my Room or The yard. I watched a veriety of Exercise classes online and Invested some time at my local park.

Last year, I also Took in an Abused dog, whom I named Midna and She became my best friend and Walking buddy. She loves to run and I know I need to try and Catch up with her! She makes it fun and easy to enjoy exercise. I did fall into a bit of a Slum recently, since I have come to a stand still- So I thought I would Share my Current Success! :D

This is me at my Graduation :c -

I don't Have many full body photo;s, but here is a good face reference

    Yup, big change! Fit things into your calorie goal: exactly. I love to see...big losers :D I'm happy for 10-pounders and I'm sure it's a struggle in it's own right. Respect everyone's journey. but it's SO encouraging to see 50, 100 lbs gone! The more you lose, the more you want to lose, right? Keep going! Besides the creeps and pervs, MFP is a great community, we're here for ya!
